Thanks for being the first to post a photo of the happy couple, Marengo. Aimée looks fabulous! The hat is really lovely, and the colour of her whole outfit is great. Not a lot of people can pull off orange’s. It looks like it’s pink underneath as well. Very nice. Can’t wait to see more.

I just saw it on television! So lovely, Aimée's outfit! I really love it. :)

Marengo 10-20-2005 07:12 AM

The bride looks lovely (as always), the queen looks elegant as well, but....what was Maxima thinking? The outfit is ugly and the thin hair from under the hat, eugh! She can do much better then this.

Danielle 10-20-2005 07:18 AM

No, I'm not liking CP Maxima's outfit either. from what I can see, the jacket looks like it is a little suffocating. Her smile makes up for it though. Queen Beatrix looks really lovely as well! I just can't get over how pretty Aimée looks. I wish my hair would look like that when I wanted it too. :p

Well, I totally agree with you! What an ugly jacket. It makes her look old. Love the hat though. And the Queen looks very elegant, that's for sure. Just curious: did anyone catch a glimpse of Laurentien? :p

susan alicia 10-20-2005 07:27 AM

think the colourcomibination of pink and orange is pretty.
The materials are :eek: . Wonder who designed it, Sheila de Vries? That would account for the common looking materials.
The design itself looks a bit like Jacky Kennedy, pill box hat and Aimee has the same brown hair like Jacky.

Maxima looked beautifull a while ago in with the green hat. Today she is dressed like a little old lady, grey can be glamorous but not this grey .

Layla1971 10-20-2005 07:31 AM

BTW, I do think the bride looked great, the colors combined well IMO.
Queen Beatrix looked very good, and Princess Maxima could have made a better choice, the coat looks like it's almost choking her!:eek:

After seeing the close-up pics, I think Aimée is very pretty, they seem to make a great couple. Good luck to them both!

The lady in purple is Princess Irene, sister of Queen Beatrix and her son James. The lady in green is Princess Margriet also Queen Beatrix's sister. The lady in black is Princess Annette, one of Princess Margriet's daughter-in-law.
I absolutely love Aimee's outfit, it does suits her really well and lovely, the colour the hat and the style, everything so wonderful!
It's really good to see Princess Irene attends this time's Wedding.She is wearing her outfit that she wore to Queen Beatrix's Silver Jubilee.She does looks fresh and lovely.
I like Queen Beatrix's hat this time, its beautiful and she does looks great and elegant too.
I have no idea with Maxima's outfit this time,it seems looks a bit boring.

GrandDuchess 10-20-2005 08:06 AM

Aimée looks wonderful, her outfit is a real hit for me! The colour combo is quite original, but it suits her very well. I'm very impressed by the choice of outfit by this lovely bride! I wish I'd have her hair too, it looks so great and stylish. On my bad hair days, my thoughts will most definitely wonder off to the better fortunate people in this area, although I imagine that surely Aimée must have a bad hair day too every once in a while.

What Máxima is wearing is really not my cup of tea, it looks so terribly boring and straining, the "pattern" is terrible and the colours aren't very nice either... Like someone said, she dressed as an older lady would. But on her it almost looks like a straitjacket... :D

Princess Margriet (featured in the October newsletter, btw) looks wonderful too, she looks very stylish and dignified.

Zonk 10-20-2005 08:17 AM

Poor Maxima! She just can't win. She wears something colorful and she is accused of trying to upstage the bride. Something not colorful and she is criticized as well. What should she have worn? Sorry..just my opinion.

Aimee is a beautiful bride. Can't wait to see what she wears at the religious ceremony. The Queen looks elegant as always.

DDD 10-20-2005 08:24 AM

The one in purple is Princess Irene, younger sister of Queen Beatrix
The one in green is Princess Margriet, mother of the groom and younger sister of Beatrix and Irene
The one in Black is Princess Annete, Wife of Prince Bernhard, son of Margriet and brother of the groom
The one with the pink hat is Princess Marilene, Wife of Prince Maurits, oldest brother of the groom

By the way, Maxima's outfit is really terrible for this event. It may be that she thinks it is cold so she choose this outfit:s

susan alicia 10-20-2005 08:34 AM

Think Annette is wearing very dark green, trimmed with black ribbon and

Marilene is wearing lavender/lilac and I like what she is wearing best of all.
